^our posts crossed, Meade. CONGRATS! Nice factory bags! The fastest color, too. How many miles?

These VFR's can be tweaked to please. ...sport touring or more sporty (as i did), meanwhile does it all well.

Hey, what are your impressions of THAT powerplant?

Smile Last real VFR

IMO this is the last Good VFR before it got too fat and lazy.

Thanks! They're Corbin Beetle bags, not factory, but close to it. Starting out with 42,000, two owner. There will be some things to replace I'm sure, and I'll do some preventative maintenance, but it has everything I want: ohlins shock, racetech springs, gpr stabilizer, sargent 2pc seat, heated grips, etc.

I'm definitely impressed with it! I've really enjoyed every V4 bike I've ridden. The 5th gen is very smooth, and has most of its power up top it seems like, which I think is more fun.

I've yet to ride a VFR.


A scots bike mechanic and shop owner here has had a lovely 1998 black one for sale for close to three years now at $3000.


Maybe I'll manage to get a ride on it. He not keen on test pilots though and we don't yet know each other well.


The RWB is beautiful. My flat mate at age 17 had a lovely CBR250RR in RWB from the early 90's. Mini blades we called them. Four tiny cylinders and sixteen tiny valves. Kept up with everything until around 100mph & couldn't be beat on tight Irish coastal and mountain roads.

I have to send mine to photobucket, let them resize. Then get ex500.com and photobucket side by side in "stereo", then do some copy and paste action. That's the easy way for me.

2006 Ninja500R Purchased new July 2006, 0 miles. Miles as of January 2017 88652. It is a GO bike, not a SHOW bike.
